deduction apply as much. phases out. we have a phase out called amt. neil: bill clinton maybe has the best example. he raised income taxes, but he lowered a lot of investment related taxes. that was enough to impress even art laffer who voted for the guy twice. i wonder whether that is the solution. that if you're going to tax, fine, okay. i'm not a big fan, but you have to provide a tax code somewhere else, and that's what's missing here. >> well, there's too much taxation, and the spending is incredibly just overwhelming. that's the problem, obviously, the spheppedding problem, and, really, i'm frustrated as a republican because i want to see the republicans be as aggressive it not more aggressive than obama has been about taxes. where are they being aggressive? they are not doing it. i hope that boehner and company, what they come up with -- cut the spending because that's obviously the big problem. as far as taxes, everything, you know, businesses, if they are crushed, they will leave the country. we will make businesses leave left and right. that will happen. we can't have that. we ha
'll be a lot better off. neil: you know, i was just thinking, sabrina, know, of bill clinton when he knew he would be challenged on some of the executive orders he gave and executive actions he took, he was quite aware of the distinct possibility that courts would overturn him, which many of them they did. but the damage was done, and he got what he wanted originally, and to undo it easier said than done after the fact. is this this president's strategy as well? >> i'm wondererring if he just feels extra confident. a lot of people thought obamacare would be overturned, and it was not. neil: true, true. >> here we are seeing the debris that's left in its wake, and it's not good for the economy or people's liberty liberty. so i think this is a president who has a lot of extra confidence. i'm just thankful someone like yourself is actually talking about this because really the conversation all this week has not been about this power grab or executive orde, but about a gender imbalance in the second-cabinet. how unimportant when you consider what we're talking about here. neil: yeah, you know, t
may go out. i think we are set. connell: dagen mentioned the former president bill clinton. if he were an office, he would bring you and. if he had this position and he said he will not negotiate, what would you tell him? >> i would say the american people want more. it is right that if we defaulted and i hope that does not happen, the republicans would be blamed. the president's approach is much more conciliatory than this process. dagen: if the democrats are winning every battle, why on the flip side, are losing everyone? how do they find some middle ground? >> first, the republican party it self is deeply divided.
